Rabbi Jonathan Bernis understands the power of the spoken word. He had a woman in his office who had been suffering from depression for over 20 years. She had gone to several different doctors. They could not help her.
Rabbi Bernis gave the woman a number of different faith-building Bible verses and told her to spend an hour every day speaking them out loud.
The woman began confessing faith scriptures — and so on. When she went back to the rabbi less than TWO WEEKS later, she was completely healed.
Faith Comes By Hearing and Hearing By the Word of God. Romans 10:17
Meditate using the spoken word
Meditate on the Word day and night so that you will be careful to do what is written. Then you will be prosperous and successful. Joshua 1:8, paraphrased
Joshua was about to lead around three million Jews into the promised land. God told him that if he meditated on the word of God, he would be prosperous and successful. When God said meditate, He used the Hebrew word hagaw. Hagaw means to talk, to utter, to mutter.
In other words, in order to make God’s word come to pass in our lives, we should say it out loud. At least, say it loud enough so that your ears can hear it. Our brains process things differently when we hear them as opposed to just thinking them.
For with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.Romans 10:10
In other words, if a person believes in his spirit (heart) first, then he gets results by confessing the word. If you are in the habit of praying for people person to person, get them to confess that your prayer for them will be answered. Get them to speak it out loud boldly. Tell them the power of the spoken word.
Katie Souza went from working in the entertainment industry to being a career criminal. Her days were filled with drugs, clandestine laboratories, stolen vehicles, high-speed chases, gun shootouts, and many arrests.
But after being caught and sentenced to 13 years in prison, Katie’s life was radically transformed. Now she is out of prison, in full-time ministry, and when she ministers, people are healed physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Katie Souza changed through one prayer
Before she was saved, Katie was serving a 12.5 year sentence in prison. One time in frustration she said, “I give up. I surrender.” God showed up. She got saved and began having Bible studies in prison.
She became as fanatical for God as she had been for crime. She began hearing the voice of God.
One time God told her that he would get her out of prison on a specific date. She told every prisoner what God had told her. She indeed was released on that date.
Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, he gave thanks and broke them. Then he gave them to the disciples to distribute to the people. Luke 11:16
Graeme Walsh shares something that many Christians don’t recognize — when several generations have sickness, divorce and even poverty running down their family line, this often is a generational curse. He urges you to close the door on generational curses AND he tells how.
The Word of God says I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generationExodus 20:5b and Our fathers sinned, and are no more; and we bear their iniquities. Lamentations 5:7
If we sin and do not repent of it, the enemy has a legal right to come into our lives. If our ancestors back a few generations sinned and no one has repented of it, the enemy has a legal right to come into our lives.
It may seem unfair, but that is the reality of it. The Bible tells us so.
In a third of the recorded healings of Jesus, He first cast out a demon.
Deliverance and Communion
Communion is the greatest tool for deliverance. Demons know about the blood of Jesus. They are afraid when they hear about the blood.
Graeme Walsh was a guest speaker at a church in Korea. A particular church member would demonically manifest so often that four men had been permanently assigned to restrain him when he manifested.
The demon manifested while Graeme was there. The assigned restrainers held him down and Graeme forced the man to take communion. Within ten or twenty seconds the man was delivered!
A woman had a generation scoliosis curse. Her head was bent down so it touched her chest.
Graeme Walsh took dominion over the spirit of infirmity in the name of Jesus. The woman was instantly healed a grew two inches taller while they were watching.
Bill Ligon has spent years studying the supernatural power of blessing people. He uses the priestly blessing found in Numbers 6:23-27. It can mean that they are blessed by God to have supernatural happenings in their lives. In 200 cases the blessings given to barren women was pregnancy. Read on.
The priestly blessing often involves absolutely forgiving someone who has cursed you and then praying that a blessing will come upon them.
Forgiveness removed birthmark
In one case a lady had an unsightly birthmark on her forehead. She not been wanted at birth. Her mother told her something to the effect of, “I didn’t want you. I wish you had never been born.”
Bill Ligon and his wife counselled with her for a few hours. She was able to forgive her mother and pray a blessing upon her. During the counselling session the birthmark faded away.
Bill Ligon and his wife have given a priestly blessing for 200 barren women who have later become pregnant. This blessing has even helped children get higher marks in school.
In 1906 a one-eyed black man by the name of William Seymour began preaching and praying for people in a warehouse on Azusa St. This became known as the Azusa Street Revival.
Shoulder & arm restored on Azusa St.
One man had his shoulder and arm ripped off. William Seymour prayed and, as people watched, the bone grew out followed by flesh. It took about two seconds for the entire arm to grow out.
Members of the congregation began to pray for each other. In one case a man’s fingers had been cut off. They grew back before everyone’s eyes. Another member held her finger on a man’s gum where a tooth was missing. The entire tooth grew back while she watched. A skinny cancer victim was healed and also gained 40 pounds within three hours.
Another revival in 100 years
William Seymour prophesied that in about a hundred years another revival would occur that would be greater than the Azusa Street Revival. It would travel all around the world.
Roberts Liardon wrote a book called The Azusa Street Revival. It tells the whole story — the origins and events that surrounded the revival fire that fell at Azusa Street in downtown Los Angeles. Roberts Liardon fills in the blanks left out by other books on Azusa, tracing the events that led up to the revival including the Cane Ridge Revival, Phoebe Palmer and the Holiness Movement, the influence of Alexander Dowie’s precious Zion City in Chicago, the rise of Charles Parham and his student William Joseph Seymour who became the catalyst for the Azusa Street revival.
When the fire fell in early April 1906, it would spread from what a Los Angeles newspaper referred to as a “tumble down shack” to the four corners of the earth. Liardon describes in vivid detail how the battle cry of Pentecostal revival sounded from Azusa Street would erupt in every continent and among all people groups of the world and cause Pentecostalism to become a major force in Christendom.
When the presence of the Holy Spirit is thick in David Hernandez’ meetings, awesome miracles can happen.
In one case David was inspired to call someone to the front. He was unable to lift one arm because part of the muscle had been surgically removed. The muscle was supernaturally restored.
Watch this miracle in the video below.
Who is the Holy Spirit?
The Holy Spirit is the One who:
Stirs our faith

Breaks addictions & bondages
Delivers captives from demonic oppression
And there’s more. Learn about them in the video below.
How to Develop a Relationship with the Holy Spirit
Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46:10
Getting close to the Holy Spirit requires silence & stillness. Silence is the putting away of outer distractions. Stillness is the quieting of the soul (mind, will, emotions, etc.)
It’s a good idea to go away privately. Then, when you go away to someplace quiet and get a revelation from the Holy Spirit, meditate upon it.
This is explained much more fully in the video below.
How to Retreat into Your Spirit
May your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless. 1 Thess. 5:23b
You have to retreat away from your body & soul and retreat into your spirit. You do that by meditating on the Word of God. You capture the revelation, the Holy Spirit breathes upon the Word and causes creation to take place.
The Word of God without the spirit is information, the spirit without the Word is inspiration. Together they bring about creation. Then the Word can transform you.
Aliss Cresswell creates signs that say “Expect a Miracle”. That attitude is part of her everyday life.
One day she was in a hotel room and the Holy Spirit told her to go behind the hotel and sit at a table. So she did.
Two workmen came along and sat at the table next to her. They were discussing the concept that miracles are not even real.
Aliss sat down with them and said she wanted to show them that miracles really do happen. She found out their physical problems and prayed for them. Both men were healed.
Watch the video below to see what happened.
Quick miracle, healed of Parkinson’s disease
Alice Cresswell was speaking at a small gathering. Someone pushed up a lady in a wheelchair. She had Parkinson’s disease.
Alice said a quick prayer: In the name of Jesus, be healed.
She ended up pushing the wheelchair out of the meeting room.
Examples of praying for a miracle
Aliss Cresswell found a lump on her breast. This is how she handled that problem.
She did not come into agreement with it. She commanded the lump to leave in the name of Jesus. She put her finger on it and it disappeared.
Watch the story in the video below.
Commands when she prays
When Aliss Cresswell prays, she commands things to happen in the name of Jesus. She will command a demon to leave. She will command bones to go into place.
Watch the video below for further explanation.
No faith; back healed anyway
During a healing seminar, a lady in the audience interrupted to say that her friend’s teenage son had died even after they prayed for him. She said that she and her friend had no faith in healing at all.
Later Aliss Cresswell was preparing to heal someone with a broken back. She asked the lady with no faith to help with the healing. The lady put her hand on the victim’s back and could feel the power of the Holy Spirit coming down her arm.
